Teas in this collection include:
Da Hong Pao (Oolong tea): Also known as Big Red Robe, this storied oolong produces a cup that is brisk and complex with both a roasted profile and hints of stone fruit.
Emperor's Pu-Erh (Pu-Erh tea): Bold and memorable, this golden tippy pu'erh makes a cup worthy of royalty. This tea brews up a deep coffee color and is full-bodied. It is often described as elemental due to its aged quality and damp soil aroma.
Lapsang Souchong (Black tea): Traditionally smoke-dried over pinewood fires, this superior Lapsang leaf tea comes from the Chinese province of Fujian and has a heady aroma with smoky character.
Nepali Emerald (Green tea): From one of the smallest tea growing regions in the world, comes a mild, grassy green tea that is truly meant to be treasured. The leaves are slightly curly and medium sized with both rich, green tips and silvery tips.
Margaret's Hope Darjeeling (Black tea): Boasting a medium body with a classic floral finish, this Darjeeling is cultivated on India's famous Margaret's Hope plantation in the foothills of the snow-capped Himalayas. It is one of the world's premier teas and often referred to as the “champagne of teas.”
Yunnan White Dragon (White tea): This highly prized white tea is grown in the southwestern Chinese province of Yunnan and picked during the spring when the leaves are young. The long, twisted leaves resemble dragons and produce a cup that is very mellow in flavor.
